Don't get me wrong - I love LMDE and I'd love to see where it's heading but I really want to move over from my distrohopping partition soon.
On the other hand the reviewer really really downplayed the performance differences. I mean come on! the memory footprint is like HALF! of ubuntu.
Agree! It's only about 149mb in the first boot, and after a while, like me, using VirtualBox, installing other stuff and wanting some apps to be loaded at start up, is just about 220mb. So is not true what he's saying. It's a little bluff the way that this person or team, do their reviews... A bluff because is not well analyzed.
